What is Child Abuse?

Child abuse is intentional harm to a child by an adult or another child. This may be over a prolonged period of time or can also be a one-off action.

Child abuse may be physical, sexual or emotional - it can happen in person or online. Child abuse can also result from a lack of love, care and attention – this is called Neglect.
